Does the institution have an active student group focused on sustainability?:
A brief description of the student group:
There are at least three active student organizations that are focused on improving UIC's sustainability. In addition, there are more groups that explore environmental and sustainability themes to improve UIC and student's awareness of the problems.
One student organization in particular is the the Green Youth Revolution(GYR). GYR is a grassroots student organization that revolves around expanding environmental awareness, responsibility and stewardship at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the community. The movement is centered on ecology, health, human rights, social and environmental justice. GYR not only seeks to educate, involve and heighten awareness in the cause for environmental conservation, but to encourage lifelong social action and volunteerism. In doing so, they work to make positive environmental changes at UIC and on a local, state and national level.
